Bronto, why do you post this complete bullshit? Who exactly do you think is going to be fooled by it? The websites you link are literally like mobile phone burner numbers. They post fake news one day and close down the next.

Oh well, I am SHOCKED to discover this.
Media Bias Fact Check: Incompetent or Dishonest?
As Just Facts grows in prominence and reputation, an increasing number of scholars, major organizations, and eminent people have cited and recognized the quality work of Just Facts. With this higher profile, Just Facts has also been subject to deceitful attacks. A recent example of such comes from “Media Bias Fact Check,” an “independent media outlet” that claims to be “dedicated to educating the public on media bias and deceptive news practices.”
In the opening paragraph of her review of Just Facts, Media Bias Fact Check contributor Faith Locke Siewert writes:
On their article http://www.justfacts.com/
Those two sentences contain three demonstrable falsehoods:
“A Systemic Analysis of Affirmative Action in American Law Schools” is not just an essay. It is a peer-reviewed journal paper that was published in the Stanford Law Review. Big difference.
Just Facts does not use this paper to support “much of” its research on affirmative action. The research contains more than 60 footnotes, and this paper is just one of them. Just Facts’ full research on racial issues has 498 footnotes, and this paper is two of them.
Just Facts does not offer any “hypothesis” in this research, much less “support the notion of black intellectual abilities being inferior.” To the contrary, the opening section of Just Facts’ research on racial issues covers the topic of science and presents multiple facts that challenge that notion.
The flagrant and simplistic nature of these bogus critiques suggests that Media Bias Fact Check is either inept and/or dishonest.
